Earlier in the year, Highsnobiety obtained some leaked images of the so-called adidas Originals NMD_R2. Now the Brand with the Three Stripes is providing official confirmation.
The model features slight twists on its predecessor the NMD_R1, most notably a Boost midsole that features debossed stripe details in place of EVA plugs. Arriving in two Primeknit colorways featuring a so-called “shadow noise” motif, the updated sneaker also boasts a waxed-suede heel-patch and branded tab on the heel.
No release date has been unveiled as of yet, but our gut feeling is that the NMD_R2 will be hitting shelves before the year is out.
